In comic books it’s often seen that the hero is a hero to their core. Even with the increase in anti-heroes the darker, broody, edgy hero still has a relate-able past wrought it tragedy. This helps readers experience the stories on a more personal level, but what if your hero used to be a terrible person who just woke up and wanted to be better? Such is the theme in Bryan J. L. Glass and Victor Santos’ Furious #1 coming out later this month.
While the title character deals with her own demons she’ll also have to protect her past from a celebrity obsessed culture meant to mirror our own. What will the world think when their first ever super hero turns out to be a scum bag? Can the people trust the good deeds of a reprehensible person? This won’t be your average beat’em up comic book. Furious will be a self contained mini series debuting later this month from Dark Horse Comics, but you can get a little taste of Santos’ amazing artwork and Glass’ take on a person searching for redemption.
